       doveadm-sieve - Commands related to handling Sieve scripts


       doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] sieve_cmd [options] [arguments]


       The  doveadm sieve commands are part of the Pigeonhole Project (pigeonhole(7)), which adds
       Sieve (RFC 5228) and ManageSieve (RFC 5804) support to the Dovecot secure  IMAP  and  POP3
       server (dovecot(1)). The doveadm sieve commands can be used to manage Sieve filtering.


       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -f formatter
              Specifies the formatter for formatting the output.  Supported formatters are:

              flow   prints each line with key=value pairs.

              pager  prints  each key: value pair on its own line and separates records with form
                     feed character (^L).

              tab    prints a table header followed by tab separated value lines.

              table  prints a table header followed by adjusted value lines.

       -o setting=value
              Overrides the configuration setting from  /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf  and  from  the
              userdb with the given value.  In order to override multiple settings, the -o option
              may be specified multiple times.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

       Command specific options:

       -A     If the -A option is present, the command will be performed for  all  users.   Using
              this option in combination with system users from userdb { driver = passwd } is not
              recommended, because it  contains  also  users  with  a  lower  UID  than  the  one
              configured with the first_valid_uid setting.

              When  the  SQL  userdb  module  is used make sure that the iterate_query setting in
              /etc/dovecot/dovecot-sql.conf.ext matches your database  layout.   When  using  the
              LDAP userdb module, make sure that the iterate_attrs and iterate_filter settings in
              /etc/dovecot/dovecot-ldap.conf.ext match your LDAP  schema.   Otherwise  doveadm(1)
              will be unable to iterate over all users.

       -S socket_path
              The  option's argument is either an absolute path to a local UNIX domain socket, or
              a hostname and port (hostname:port), in order to connect a remote host  via  a  TCP

              This  allows an administrator to execute doveadm(1) mail commands through the given

       -u user/mask
              Run the command only for the given user.  It's also possible to  use  '*'  and  '?'
              wildcards (e.g. -u *
              When  neither the -A option nor -u user was specified, the command will be executed
              with the environment of the currently logged in user.


              Is the name of a Sieve script, as visible to ManageSieve clients.

              NOTE: For Sieve scripts that are stored on disk, this is the filename  without  the
              ".sieve" extension.


   sieve put
       doveadm sieve put [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] [-a] scriptname

       This  command  puts  one  new  Sieve script in the script storage. The script is read from
       standard input. If the script compiles successfully,  it  is  stored  under  the  provided
       scriptname .   If the -a option is present, the Sieve script is subsequently marked as the
       active script for execution at delivery.

   sieve get
       doveadm sieve get [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] scriptname

       This command retrieves the Sieve script named scriptname.

   sieve delete
       doveadm sieve delete [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] [-a] scriptname ...

       This command deletes one or more Sieve scripts. The deleted script may not be  the  active
       script, unless the -a option is present.

   sieve list
       doveadm sieve list [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] scriptname

       Use this command to get an overview of existing Sieve scripts.

   sieve rename
       doveadm sieve rename [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] old_name new_name

       The sieve rename command is used to rename the Sieve script old_name to new_name.

   sieve activate
       doveadm sieve activate [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] scriptname

       This command marks the Sieve script named scriptname as the active script for execution at

   sieve deactivate
       doveadm sieve deactivate [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] scriptname

       This command deactivates Sieve processing.
